2010 Sidecar TT Race 2
TT Rewind - 2010 • 16m
One duo took home their second victory of the week at this nail-biting Sidecar finale at the 2010 Isle of Man TT Races, winning by just 1.12 seconds.
The race was on for Klaus Klaffenbock and Daniel Sayle and long-time race leaders John Holden and Andy Winkle.
Simon Neary and Paul Knapton led the pack from the outset, closely followed by Dave Molyneux and partner Patrick Farrance. However, several dramas followed, including an early retirement from Tim Reeves and Dipash Chauhan and thereafter, fourteen-time champion Molyneux.
The drama continued when Neary failed to make it past the Bungalow, thus handing the lead to Holden. Over the next lap, Holden extended his lead by over 10 seconds, but on the third and final lap, Klaffenbock really flew, and led for the first time by just a quarter of a second and with the fastest lap of the race, 114.157pmh – making for an exhilarating Sidecar finale.
Other stunning performances included male/female duo Conrad Harrison and Kerry Williams who recorded their best ever TT position and their first TT podium with third place.
